    American Fathers Disappearing ​



    by Ben Shapiro
    27 Dec 2012

    With America suffering from increasing poverty, and with more and more children born into mountains of debt unleashed by their parents’ and grandparents’ generations, the greatest threat of all may be this: the American father is dying. According to the Washington Times, every state has watched single-parent households multiply while two-parent households decline:

    Even as the country added 160,000 families with children, the number of two–parent households decreased by 1.2 million. Fifteen million US children, or 1 in 3, live without a father, and nearly 5 million live without a mother. In 1960, just 11 percent of American children lived in homes without fathers.​

    Single motherhood is the single leading predictor of poverty and crime in America today. While married couples average $80,000 in earnings, single moms average $24,000. The worst problem with lack of fathers takes place in the black community; 54% of black children live without a father. But single motherhood is skyrocketing across racial lines, with 41% of all births taking place out of wedlock. A full 30% of children born to white women with some post-high school education but no college degree have no father in the home. That number is 60% for those who don’t go to college.

    And sadly, A Dad was the tenth most requested item on kids' Christmas Wish Lists this year.

    In Britain. A baby brother or sister was at the top of the list.

    And while dad was at number ten, they wanted a rock even more. Number nine on the list. :confused:

    Also, it wasn't "a dad". It was "Dad". Could be the kids in divorced families wanted to see Dad for Christmas.

    I was just reading today that American women now have a birth rate of 1.9 children.

    It takes 2.1 children per woman to maintain the population.

    Immigrant birth rates are plunging. And the balance between the influx and outflow of Mexicans is about zero.

    It's much funner trying to make kids than it is raising them.

    Wow. You really are a pathetic tool. Dad vs. A Dad.

    And the issues facing fatherless children in the U.S. are not much different than those facing fatherless children in Britain. It's sad the way our government has destroyed family creation and put millions of children at risk.

    The destruction of the family and family values, the bedrocks of liberalism. But ask a kid, an they'll tell you it's perfectly normal, cause their teacher said so.
